Pro Men's Gold Medal Match from the 2019 Franklin Pickleball Masters

Pro Men's Gold Medal Match from the 2019 Franklin Pickleball Masters

Recently we brought you an incredible point from the 2019 Franklin Pickleball Masters Men’s GOLD Medal Match. After seeing Collin Johns pull off an amazing behind the back shot, one of our YouTube viewers, Seyd Fawaz commented, “After seeing this I tried it at my local Y and now I am left with a twisted wrist 😑”. I think Seyd might agree with us when we say that the Johns brothers should come with a “Don’t Try This at Home” warning. Get well soon Seyd.

If one point wasn’t enough for you pickleball fenatics, then don’t worry because we are bringing you the whole match along with the Women’s GOLD. Both these matches feature the best players in the game battling it out for some of the largest prize money ever to be offered for a single showing in pickleball.

In the Men’s GOLD, we watch the brothers Johns test their mettle against two giants of the sport, Matt Wright and Kyle Yates. This is truly a battle for the ages, and if at any point in this match you think you know who’s going to win… you’re probably wrong.

    Several camera changes just as a critical shot is made. Need to show a replay on those. Wow. Great match!

  3. salty admin on May 7, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    This sport is a joke



  4. Haimin100 on May 7, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Wtf …. is this ?



  5. golfmaniac007 on May 7, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    for those who couldn’t make pro tennis or pro table tennis……we have pickleball!



  6. Todd Mathis on May 7, 2021 at 11:45 pm

    It’s refreshing not to have a third female commentator that talks too much.



  7. shlng on May 7, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    wait, people actually watch this abomination???



  8. Henry Le on May 7, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Game 3 10-1 , final 10-12 wow! What a comeback



  9. John Vergo on May 7, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Wow, what great match. Slow mo replays on select points would make this even better!



  10. Ice Bear on May 7, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    I don’t understand how pickleball works



  11. Zonie deep on May 7, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    ???



  12. Patrick Kyle on May 7, 2021 at 11:50 pm

    As a tennis player whose club is considering adding pickleball courts I was checking the game out. Confused by the run of play/scoring I checked the rules which said, about doubles, that when MY team’s score is even service is from the right court, and when odd from the left court. Why then at 9:46 when the score is 3-4 is the server on the right (deuce) court?

    Ben’s leaping Erne at 4:12 – I’m not seeing the foot in the kitchen the refs called.



  16. voltaire on May 7, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Fantastic match, Thank you! I must add a comment about Rusty’s commentary. Rusty, please it’s not radio, it’s not necessary to describe what we can all see. It’s very irritating. Thanks.



  17. CondoPRO Condominium Services on May 7, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Wow! Great match !



  18. Gabriel French on May 7, 2021 at 11:54 pm

    "We have the Top-3 male players in the world right here; Ben Johns, Kyle Yates, and Matt Wright…" – One, funny that they dissed Collin Johns like that when he crushed it that entire game; two, Dave Weinbach is literally standing right behind them. Nice going, commentators…



  19. 87jello on May 7, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    I’m a bit concerned here…not much diversity in this sport. Where are the Black-Americans, Latino-Americans, and Racially Mixed-Americans?



  20. Thor Matt on May 7, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    Congrats to the John’s Brothers beating those 2 ass clowns.



  21. Drinc music on May 7, 2021 at 11:58 pm

    I’ve heard that one of these guys lives in spokane, or is from the area. kinda interesting.



  22. Thor Matt on May 7, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    For being as Rusty would say "a full house on the edge of their seats", there is a lot of empty chairs.



  23. Magic Trading on May 7, 2021 at 11:59 pm

    sad state when this is so called sport is gaining in traction and popularity – if you suck at tennis play paddle and if you suck at paddle play ping pong and if you suck at all i guess you play this game??



  24. wurtzi1221 on May 8, 2021 at 12:02 am

    The playing is fantastic, but the video needs improvement. The focal length of the long shot lens includes too much foreground and background thereby distorting the view. Check with CBS sports on what the best focal length should be.



  25. Keith C on May 8, 2021 at 12:07 am

    Freaky how much Collin Johns and Kyle Yates look alike. So used to seeing Kyle and Ben Johns play together, I was a little confused at first.



  26. Safwaan Qureshi on May 8, 2021 at 12:07 am

    what a pathetic sport



  27. Maxwell Reed on May 8, 2021 at 12:08 am

    These comments are so toxic, if you’re going to say something negative don’t say it at all



  28. Miles Hurst on May 8, 2021 at 12:09 am

    If you don’t mind please…. please consider your camera angles. wide shots, imo, don’t match cuts to MCUs. (medium close ups) reversed direction perspective is hard to watch. Viewers, imo, are going to be tossed a curveball everytime you switch from the wideshot. glad one guy had a white shirt on. maybe that’s all you could do because of the facility, I understand if that’s the case. but, given the choice, matching the perspectives of the ws/mcu would make it easier to watch. thx. good job/enjoyed.



  29. tylerbelgrade on May 8, 2021 at 12:10 am

    19:48 violation 2 times



  30. Keith Lee on May 8, 2021 at 12:10 am

    So boring. Tennis, badminton, table tennis, that’s enough racquet sports already.



  31. Straight Grizzzly on May 8, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Ladies and Gentlemen – we present the whitest sport on earth.



  32. Mike Swierbut on May 8, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Colin has been foot faulting frequently. Judge is missing at least three or four within the last 3 or 4 points.



  33. CmiLLz 23 on May 8, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Wow



  34. Neal McCormick on May 8, 2021 at 12:12 am

    They used Yates like he was the woman in mixed.



  35. F arvis on May 8, 2021 at 12:12 am

    they left tennis for this? although they can make money now playing pickle ball so that makes sense



  36. Chad C on May 8, 2021 at 12:13 am

    Im glad the sport is evolving, i remember a few years ago pro gold medal matches being short game attrition. Now its exciting to watch.



  37. Sean Harmon on May 8, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Thank God I’m a good tennis player so I don’t have to play this crap.



  38. Elan Zafir on May 8, 2021 at 12:24 am

    Very suspenseful.



  39. Lil Kim on May 8, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Aww this game is so cuteeeeeeee



  40. Austin Hardy Window Cleaning on May 8, 2021 at 12:26 am

    Wow, these announcers are more captain obvious than captain obvious. “It’s 8-2. He hit an overhead to win that point…” thanks bud



  41. Big Boy Brayden on May 8, 2021 at 12:27 am

    this is rarted xD. go play tennis or ping pong



  42. Jake on May 8, 2021 at 12:30 am

    If you like this you’re gonna love…tennis!



  43. Alexander Ham on May 8, 2021 at 12:31 am

    The guy with blonde hair and orange shoes is a pro tennis player. Near 800 in the world. I have seen him play in future tournaments.



  44. mrbobevans on May 8, 2021 at 12:32 am

    Bryan brothers are retiring after 2020 season. Would love to see them enter some pickleball tournaments in 2021.



  45. Kevin Cafaro on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Wow, what a comeback!



  46. Jeff Lo on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    even shittier than mini tennis lol



  47. Jake Harris on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Looks likes the Johns brothers tilted when they really didn’t need to.



  48. Chea7z on May 8, 2021 at 12:33 am

    Need much more slo mo and replays, so many golden plays that aren’t being broken down analyzed and admired



  49. anonymous on May 8, 2021 at 12:34 am

    Wow, great match, miraculous comeback 👍👍



  50. Laszlo Szujo on May 8, 2021 at 12:35 am
